Meeting on Dhammachayo’s surrender remains inconclusive

Wat Dhammakaya was not represented at the meeting today but the temple sent a summary report about the previous meeting to discuss the same matter.

DSI deputy director-general Pol Lt-Col Somboon Sarasit told the media after the meeting that the discussion was inconclusive as there are still some conditions from the temple which are yet to be considered although the DSI, the Office of National Buddhism and Phra Theprattanasuthee were in agreement with most of the issues being discussed.

The three parties will meet again next Tuesday.
